We are having braised lamb shank this evening - looking forward to it

I should make these more often.  

This reminds me of a time some years back that my father came to our house for dinner.  I'd planned on making Osso Buco and risotto and ordered the shanks the night before so I could just run in, grab the meat and get home to start braising.  And that's what I did.  

When I got home to start cooking, I found out that instead of veal shanks, the butcher had given us lamb shanks.  No time to go back and fix the problem, so scrambled for a recipe.  Made braised lamb shanks with orange zest and Chianti.  Stayed with the risotto.  Killed it.  Served with a couple of 1997 CCRs instead of the Baroli I had set aside.

Pop said it was the best lamb dish he'd ever eaten.  OK.. back to your original programming.
